Fatty – She Lived Her Life

10/27/18 – The other night I was contacted by our friend, Megan, asking if we could assist in having Fatty humanely euthanized as his body functions were breaking down and she didn’t want him to suffer.. Here is his story. RIP Sweet Boy ~ diana

“This is Fatty. He was already neutered and not really feral. He had been in a cat community and when it was discovered that he was domesticated, he was taken in by an awesome family who knew that they would have to foster him until his last day because of his age. It appeared he had been abandoned by his family. Fatty claimed his new rescue family as his own. Over the last few years he has started to slow down and show his age. The vet estimated him to be around 20-22 years of age. Today Fatty told us that it was time to cross the bridge. With the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart, he peacefully crossed the bridge being held with love and care.
Rest in heaven sweet boy.- Megan”

Terry – Reducing the Overpopulation of Cats

10/25/18 – Because of the many cats who have come to us for help, many people think we only assist abandoned/stray cats. But that is not the case–we are equal opportunity. The problem is that no matter how many cats we have helped to get spayed/neutered, the need never seems to change. And, the more stray cats, the more injuries and illnesses. We received the following from Theresa:

“I got him in June/July at 7 weeks old. My blind acquaintance/friend wanted a kitten and got him off the street on 7 mile and Woodward through a friend. She ended up realizing it was too hard for her and called me to take him back to where he came from. I told her I’m not taking him and dropping him back off outside so I brought him to my house and he is just the most loving hilarious cat with such funny quirks. I thank you so much for helping me to get him fixed. We don’t need any more kittens around the neighborhood just in case he ever got outside.”

Can you imagine this little cutie being left outside? ~ dianaTerry - 10:25:18 Terry--10:25:18

Sophie and Moana – Their Owner Became Ill and Could No Longer Care for Them

10/24/18 – Sophie and Moana are ‘senior ladies’ who were given over to a foster after their owner became ill. Unfortunately, after a short while, the family was never back in contact with the foster and now she is responsible for finding placement for them. One had a severe upper respiratory infection and both needed vaccines and spays — all covered by 4p1h. Sophie and Moana are listed on our Friends of 4 Paws fb page and our petfinder site. So many animals find themselves in these situations when owners don’t make prior plans for their pets. ~ diana

Pepper – Abandoned by His Owners and Then Bounced Around

10/22/18 – Bounced and Abused — Meet Pepper.

Pepper was left outside to fend for herself after her owners “packed up and left” in August. The neighbor had been feeding her and letting her into her home on cold nights. The neighbor had taken Pepper to Animal Control where it was found that she had been chipped but the owner’s information was not registered — although, quite frankly, why would anyone want to return this cat to an owner who kicked her out. She was spayed in July and turned into Animal Control in September and was now back on the streets.

She is super friendly although a little thin. There are a few people interested in adopting her (paws crossed).
And, as someone recently said, 4 Paws 1 Heart (and our supporters) were there to make sure that Pepper would be physically ready for her new home. Prayers that Pepper finds that forever, loving, and permanent home. ~ diana

Rooster – He Was Sitting in the Middle of the Road

10/22/18 – Meet Rooster. His rescuer sent me the following message:

Thank you again for giving a helping hand to this sweet stray that has captured everyone’s hearts. We’re calling him Rooster for now, but I expect that to change as his personality comes out. The vet techs were snuggling him and asking if I planned to keep him—which I hope to do—but if not, I have every confidence that we’ll find him a great forever home.

I’ve included a photo of Rooster. He may look like he’s mean-mugging, but he has a heart of gold. When I met him, he was sitting in the middleRooster w:jill leonard 10:16:18of the road, completely oblivious that I had just pulled up behind him and he was in my path. I got out to check on him and after a moment of standoffishness, he couldn’t get enough attention. I left the car parked at the curb, and he walked beside me all the way home like the most loyal companion. We’ll get him feeling better in no time. He has ear mites, ear infections, can’t hear, and has fleas bad enough that they resulted in anemia and may be the cause of his heart murmur. Thanks to you, I have the meds to treat him and he will be vaccinated when he is well enough. ~ Jill”

Rooster is under the rescue SouthMittens Kittens. If you are interested in adopting him, please contact southmittenskittens@gmail.com

Alley – Found in a Feral Cat Community With Serious Eye Issues

10/19/18 – Please say a little prayer for Alley. She was rescued from a feral cat community. She originally tested negative for fiv/felv. But, she continued to have issues with her eye. She was again tested and the test results came in positive for leukemia. We then had her tested again, and, unfortunately, the test came back positive. Alley will still be seeing an eye specialist, as was recommended by our vet; she is with a wonderful rescuer who will keep us updated.-diana
